This is a great cycling route which follows a circuit loop on good road surfaces past several Lochs and reservoirs with excellent views in the countryside. The roads are quiet and the terrain rolling. It makes for excellent cycling whether at a gentle pace, moderate training, or fast riding. Easily reached from central Glasgow or nearby areas such as Newton Mearns and Paisley. Well worth a ride and can be extended or shortened if preferred.
Great cycling loop route – based out of free parking at Milton of Campsie and very near to Glasgow.
Road starts up the Crow Road followed by a relatively flat section past the Carron Valley Reservoir. Small further section of climbing then down the Tak-Ma-Doon road – a very steep descent. Route in reverse is much tougher.
